DC Comics Solicitations May Have Spoiled Mr. Oz’s Identity!

Speculation has been rampant since Rebirth kicked off a little over a year and a half ago about who the mysterious Mr. Oz might be with everyone from the Watchmen’s Ozymandias to Shazam being tossed out there as possible suspects. However, a rumor came out of SDCC that Mr. Oz may be someone a lot closer to Superman than who most people would think. Check out the covers to both Action Comics #987 and #988 below as it seems to support that rumor.
